Snowed-in in PDX

Thinking of warmer climates.....

snow -3 °C

Ahh..here I am...the whole week of Christmas off from work, and we're snowed in. And my thoughts should be on my upcoming trip to Sri Lanka, but instead I'm thinking about what days I should go into the office to finish up some work before I go. Talk about dedication! Oh is it that I am a slave to my job? Maybe both....

Anyway, I'm not exactly snowed-in, we had about 6-inches or so of snow yesterday and then a coating of freezing rain on top.

Put the chains on the Escape (Hybrid of course) Totally against SUV's, but we only got it because it's a hybrid and it's been VERY useful.

So in a week and a half, we're off to SL. Yes, it is my home country, but I've been in the US since I was 7 so it's almost like visiting a foreign country. But in other aspects, it's like going back home. Does it sound like I'm confused? I'm not. Whenever I'm in SL, I feel like I belong there, like everyone there is family. I don't feel the same here. But at the same time, I'm so used to the lifestyle here, it's like a totally new world. But I adjust pretty quickly so it's all good...

This will be my first time in SL with a family (my wife and two kids). All my relatives there are looking forward to meeting the kids! We, however, are NOT looking forward to the flight!

We have a lot of trips planned. I never like to stay in one spot for too long...there's too many things to do and places to see! Even in SL, there are so many places we haven't been. Looking forward to the trip...I'll plan to upload some pictures and keep a regular blog. We'll see how it goes, I hope I have time.

By the way, I also plan to upload some of my previous trips IF I ever get a chance....

Till next time....
